recently published book - A New Look at Australian Light
Musician and visual artist Di Bresciani's first book explored the synchronicities of colour and sound as they were referenced in her paintings at that time. Di Bresciani: A New Look at Australian Light concentrates on light and its importance to so many aspects of human sensory perception. Even more particularly, Bresciani's recent paintings, with their colours and compositional rhythms, are based on the perceptions of Australian light as the artist has experienced it.
Introduced by Dr Gerard Vaughan AM, previously Director of the National Gallery of Victoria and the National Gallery of Australia; and with opening chapters by Deirdre Cannon of the National Gallery of Australia, the book traces Di Bresciani's career as an artist with special reference to recent work. In addition, the artist herself has contributed five chapters explaining how light features in Australia's history of art and the broader historical and cultural context. Further texts have been provided by Piers Lane AO, Pam Kershaw and Merron Jean Kirby OAM; and representatives of the Royal Over-Seas League in Australia and Over-Seas, and University College, the University of Melbourne.
Price: $180 for a SIGNED copy.
